Quote:It wasn't back then, and it isn't today. Greeks were just retelling the stories of the Egyptians and Mesopotamians millennia before them. Human experience really doesn't change that much. It just gets paint jobs.
Quote:However, there are differences between real mythologies and things like Star Trek, Star Wars, comics, etc.
Well, imagine WW3 happens. Einstein was right!
Humanity is thrust back to the stone age. 3 thousand years from now our ancestors find remnants (some how they were inside a sealed vault that protected them) of pictures and texts of the X-Men, Star Trek, or Avengers.
I could see them mistaking those things as ancient mans myths.
Age and a few centuries are all that's needed to make it happen.
There would still be enough evidence to show they were not myths. None of these things have religious iconography.
